Storage sheds are often used to store items that will be needed and used again in the future. Patio furniture, bikes, and even potted plants can be stashed away in storage sheds over winter and brought out once the weather is more conducive. This opens up space that can now be used for other purposes and protects items while not in use. Storage sheds can be used for other things than just storage, though. Here are a few different ways to utilize your storage shed this summer.

1. Workshop

A storage shed can be a great space to set up your workshop and get to woodworking and other projects. You can likely use the existing shelving and hanging wall space to set out your tools, or otherwise find your nearest metal supplier and install your own. If your shed has windows, you should be able to operate comfortably with enough ventilation if your work produces dust or paint fumes you want to dissipate.

2. Pool Cabana

When the weather gets warmer, you will probably use it more if you have a pool. You can use your storage shed as a pool cabana, storing paraphernalia like floats and loungers. You can also take pool cleaning chemicals and other pool supplies out of your garage and conveniently keep them in your shed. If the shed is large enough, you can also convert it into a changing room with a bathroom. This can be very helpful if you plan on entertaining guests so that it can be a separate space for their use.

3. Playhouse

You can convert your storage shed into a playhouse for your kids. This will create a separate outdoor space where they can make a mess without worrying it will interfere with the main house. Having a specific place for toys and play will be easier to keep clean, though you may want to set up a camera or check on your kids, especially if they are younger. If you can make electric connections, you can make it into a game room where your kids can hang out with friends, laugh, and be noisy.

4. Art Room

Warmer weather makes it easier to take your hobbies outdoors like painting, sculpting, and other crafts. You can set up easels in your shed to work on your projects. You can turn this space into a makeshift art studio for yourself or your kids without worrying that paints and other splattering materials will make a mess.

5. Home Office

A storage shed can be a great place to work peacefully at home, away from the kids and concerns of the main house. All you need to do is connect some electricity and set up a desk area to sit. You can leave the windows or doors open for ventilation, and this will also allow you to be able to hear in case your attention is needed at the main house.

6. Animal Shelter

Some pets can create problems if left to roam freely in the main house, such as chewing furniture, getting into the trash, or using the bathroom on floors or carpet. They can cause serious damage, making it especially risky to leave them at home independently. You can set up your storage shed to be an alternative space for them to stay. Since it is sheltered, it will ensure your pet can remain cool despite the sweltering heat of summer, and you can customize the space with all kinds of comfort and toys to keep them entertained.
